Puerto Rican singer and guitarist José Feliciano's 1970 Christmas album yielded not only the biggest hit of his career, but one of the most enduringly popular Christmas pop songs of all time in the eternal "Feliz Navidad." Originally released by RCA Victor under the title José Feliciano, it later bore the name of its signature track, Feliz Navidad, when BMG reissued it on CD in 2001 along with three additional tracks ("Las Posadas," "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," and "O Come All Ye Faithful") that hadn't made the cut the first time around. Leading off with "Feliz Navidad," Feliciano's only original song of the set, the album also includes versions of holiday carols and pop classics like "The First Noel," "Little Drummer Boy," and "White Christmas," all arranged in the guitarist's distinctive Latin pop style. ~ Timothy Monger

A fine guitarist with an equally fine voice, José Feliciano slipped easily between styles -- from folk to Chicano soul to light rock, all laced with his subtle Latin rhythms -- always sounding somehow exactly like himself. Feliciano’s commercial peak came with his version of the Doors’ “Light My Fire” in 1968, but he charted several LPs into the mid-'70s while he was with RCA Records. This set, originally issued on LP in 1971, is a sort of “best-of” compilation, and features key early tracks he did for RCA, including a beautiful version of “California Dreaming,” a lush “Wichita Lineman,” and both the album and single versions of “Light My Fire.” It all adds up to a nice, quick, and pleasant introduction to this fine musician. ~ Steve Leggett

When you really get down to it, no one can croon a Latin love ballad quite like the enchanting Jose Feliciano. This collection of boleros new and old is no exception to this fact. With his customary nylon-string guitar in hand, Jose lets each timeless account of love unfold like so many petals of a rose in bloom. The years have clearly polished rather than withered his familiar voice, giving him the ability to lull and transport lovers of the world, be they Spanish-speaking or not, to the silky places he knows. Produced by his friend Rudy Perez, the arrangements feature delicate keyboards and string passages that lay the basis for Jose's swoonings, as well as his subtle jazz-inflected chords and graceful solos. Mostly slow in tempo, tempters like "Concavo Y Convexo" and "Somos" are testaments to the staying power of this romantic musical tradition.

Collection's focus isn't typical of José Feliciano compilations, of which there are many. Sure there are familiar hits here, like the melodramatic take of an already melodramatic "Light My Fire" and soulful takes on "California Dreamin'," "And I Love Her," and "Sunny," but beyond those caveats, the tracks are dominated by Feliciano's Spanish language hits. It's a refreshing approach, with the master Latin soul song interpreter taking on songs like Jorge Ben's ("Nena Na Na") and classic boleros like "Usted." The mix of English and Spanish hits on Collection gives listeners a better-defined picture of Feliciano's unique take on the Latin soul experience and serves as a good, but not definitive, introduction to both. ~ Wade Kergan

Mis Mejores Canciones highlights the Spanish language representation of Jose Feliciano on EMI/Latin. After gaining national success with his version of "Light My Fire" in 1968, Feliciano has released numerous combinations of English and Spanish music throughout his extensive career. This 17-song disc showcases his soulful Spanish vocals and guitar virtuosity. The holiday standard "Feliz Navidad" is included here as a live version of the song; listeners looking for the original hit studio version are advised to seek a greatest hits package. While not essential, this is nevertheless an entertaining disc at a budget price. ~ Al Campbell

In the 1970s, versatility was one of Jose Feliciano's strong points -- the Puerto Rican singer was a master of soul, although he also had strong soft rock and Latin pop credentials. Feliciano's diversity is an asset on And the Feeling's Good, which tends to favor soul but isn't without pop and rock. Released in 1974, this generally decent and occasionally excellent LP is best known for the charming "Stay With Me" and the two themes from the NBC sitcom Chico and the Man: the congenial opening theme and grittier closing number "Hard Times in El Barrio." The album's other selections range from Feliciano's tender "Essence of Your Love" to enjoyable performances of "You're No Good" (which was a major hit for Linda Ronstadt in 1974 and was covered by Van Halen in 1979) and Stevie Wonder's "Golden Lady." He makes an unexpected detour into hard rock on the instrumental "Virgo," which has a strong Jimi Hendrix influence and is atypical of the LP on the whole. And the Feeling's Good isn't the best album that Feliciano provided in the 1970s, but it's a respectable release that is worth hunting for. ~ Alex Henderson
